We considered this angle and I think it's probably the security issue that keeps the government from allowing these items to be further tested in academic labs.

Except here's the thing. You'd think that somewhere along the line, we'd put that technology to use. We haven't. If it exists, why haven't we done anything with it?

I would love to know where Hawking gets that from. For all his brilliance, he's like Fred Hoyle. He can really go over the cliff sometimes. At anything over 137, the periodic table, which is based on electron orbitals, breaks down. See the Dirac equation. The superactinide series allows for elements 121-157, but after that it gets really messy. The upper limit may go to around 173, but that is entirely theoretical.

Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies. And that is more infectious than any other disease. ~ Richard Feynman
